Pray WITHOUT ceasing

I’ve been very transparent about my struggles on here. I even admitted that my posting schedule has dropped significantly because of these struggles. Yesterday, I was talking with a mentee about love, life, and everything in between. God and the concept of prayer came up. While encouraging him through my weakest moments, something I told him resonated with me. Continue reading “Pray WITHOUT ceasing”

Religious Bystanders in Politics

This weekend I spent a lot of time just existing. It’s good to take some time off of writing to recharge the battery and refill the heart. In the midst of that, I found myself hurting. The more stories I read of misfortune, the more my heart hurts. I really question shouldn’t every Christian feel the same?

Today, I write this one to him when he gets older. P.S. You can check my letters to my daughter and black women here.

Struggling with Race, Religion, & Justice

Following the full acquittal of countless officers killing unarmed, innocent, or mentally ill Black people nationwide visibly for the last few years, I tend to go through emotional phases. Sometimes I am angry, dejected, depressed, contemplative, confused, frustrated, and even moved to action. However, since I’ve been getting deeper into my Bible, I’ve struggled with something.

Men or Women? Who’s First?

As I’ve been making my way through the Bible, I came across an interesting passage in Corinthians. Especially since so I’ve been growing in understanding patriarchy and how these are things affect our thoughts/interactions, I’ve been wondering what the Bible says about it.

The Loving Holy Spirit

Over the years, I’ve been learning not just about Faith but embracing the nature of the Holy Spirit. A few basic things must be understood about It:

  1. It comes with peace
  2. It’s a gentle spirit
  3. It is spontaneous

I just want to touch briefly on the Holy Spirit, how I’ve identified It and Its connections in our everyday life.

Not So Different

Almost as a continuation of my thoughts yesterday, I had a conversation that expanded my world more. Keeping up with my weekly fasting, I fasted Monday and rested mentally. I didn’t feel like cooking to break my fast, so I went to a new Greek restaurant on Franklin St. called Grk Yeero. Spontaneously, I started up a conversation with the guy at the counter and it changed me.

Ultimate Sacrifices & Love (Happy Memorial Day)

As I’ve been reading through the New Testament, I’ve had to reflect on the idea of willingly leaving everything behind to do the Lord’s Will. Whether it is to unknown success or an undertaking of great pain, how dedicated are you to a life like Christ? Continue reading “Ultimate Sacrifices & Love (Happy Memorial Day)”

Lambs in a Wolf Pack (Worry Not)

I’ve been reading through the Gospels and really meditating on its words. I feel like I am trying to read what God is writing and it is really changing my outlook. I’ve shed plenty tears and have been anxious about my everyday life. God’s lesson to me recently has been, “don’t worry about that.”
